Mayank Agarwal breaks Don Bradman’s record

Mayank has scored two double centuries on his way to the 12th innings, while Bradman waited for 13 innings for two double centuries

India’s opener Mayank Agarwal hit a second double century of his Test cricket career today. He achieved this, hitting a six off Mehedi Hasan. Agrawal surpassed the great Australian batsman Don Bradman with his double century.

Mayank completed the second double century of his career with a six on the second day of the first Test match with Bangladesh at Holkar Stadium. After the double century, he took a more aggressive stance in his batting and got busy scoring runs fast. However, on a personal score of 243, he was caught out within the boundary line by the ball of Mehedi Hasan.

Mayank has scored two double centuries on his way to the 12th innings, while Bradman waited for 13 innings for two double centuries. However, Vinod Kambli leads the table in this list, who scored two double centuries in the first five innings of his career.

On this list, Lawrence Rowe of the West Indies is in the fourth place, having scored his first two double centuries in 14 innings, while Graeme Smith of South Africa is in fifth place, having achieved the feat in 15 innings. Wally Hammond is the sixth with 16 innings and India’s Cheteshwar Pujara is seventh with 18 innings.

Mayank had scored 215 runs in Visakhapatnam during the Test series held with South Africa last month. It was his first century that he converted into a double century. This is Mayank’s third century. Mayank also scored 108 runs in the Pune Test.

He achieved this by batting brilliantly at the Holkar Stadium in Indore on Friday. He started his game ahead of yesterday’s score of 37 and led the innings with Cheteshwar Pujara. Thanks to Mayank’s brilliant innings, Team India has reached a strong position in this Test match. By the end of the second day’s play, the Indian team scored 493 runs at the loss of 6 wickets.

Now Team India is 343 runs ahead of the visiting team. Today, Ravindra Jadeja (60 *) and Umesh Yadav (25 *) returned unbeaten pavilion at stumps. Apart from Jadeja, vice-captains Ajinkya Rahane (86) and Cheteshwar Pujara (54) completed their respective half-centuries.

Mayank completed his half-century off 98 balls. Captain Virat Kohli was also out early after Pujara’s dismissal. The Indian team had reached 119 for three. In such a situation, he worked with Ajinkya Rahane to shape the Indian innings. Both shared a 190-run partnership for the fourth wicket. Rahane was dismissed for 86 runs.
